Superman Celebration

On Saturday, Todd and I rode up to Metropolis to the Superman celebration. We got there around 9:30 and met up with Bohler and just walked around as stuff was starting to open up. Bohler described it as a county fair for geeks, and I could see that completely. It reminded me of a county fair from the vendor booths lining the streets. I got to see the superman statue, and in person it seems smaller than what it looks like in pictures. We didn’t stay too long, as we wanted to take a leisurely ride though the Land Between the Lakes on the way back. I shot a few pictures of some of the costumed folks and then had a nice ride back. It was a 370 mile round trip, and a great day to be on a motorcycle.

Tomorrow will be Super (man)

Well tomorrow I will be departing on an adventure on the bike. I am headed up to Metropolis, IL in the morning to go to the Superman festival. It will be a 3 hour ride there, and I plan on coming back tomorrow evening, so I will have a little time on the bike tomorrow. I hope to be able to get some good pictures of the festival, as well as the KY state HOG rally that happens to be in Metropolis at the same time.

There is a pretty good chance that I am going to get some rain as I am riding, but that is part of the game. Hopefully I can avoid it, but the forecast is working against me.
